MDT & Snails

My good friend Hailey Holtzclaw {Hay Hay} was in the MDT Showcase a week or so ago.
Ky and I both went with friends to support.
Hay Hay had a closing number that brought down the house.
So glad I have friends who have talents for dancing I never got so I can enjoy the activity vicariously through them and all their shows.
(Sorry for the lighting. It's theater!)
This is a little tribute to my 'snails.'
For any who don't know......
6 of us girls formed a group in elementary school called the 'Snails.'
-Kylie Falke
-Hailey Holtzclaw
-Augusta Bates
-Ashley Falzone
-Amanda Adams
We were inseparable and still get together often to catch up whenever we're in Turlock. We had a notebook Ky still has somewhere, a chant, and ceramic pins Ashley or Augusta made. We were so legit.
We have all tried to bring little trinkets home for each of the 'snails' whenever we travel abroad. You might be surprised just how not-difficult that actually is! I've managed to find things in France, Peru, Africa and Utah and Ky brought us all home a little glass snail from Italy!
Going to watch Ky Ky in Dance Sport in 1 week!
Go snail #2 (???)
(We all had numbers. Forget which one she was but I was #4. Oh the things you do when you're little.)

Friday Night Fiasco

So we had a minor emergency.
Call cut his finger and took a little visit to the E.R.
We were both laughing when I showed up (at my second hospital of the night because there was a minor 'miscommunication'). After saying to the receptionist, "Um, I think my little brother is here?" I heard a voice from behind a curtain, "Anne Marie?" followed by a laugh. It was all a very calm experience...let's be honest...this wasn't Call's first trip to the E.R. for cuts and bruises. This little love isn't exactly known for his finesse.
He was very pleased to report that he hadn't gotten one drop of blood on his nice shirt or suit.
Said as soon as he cut himself with the knife he just looked at it and thought, "Hospital".
Has to come back in a few days if numbness doesn't go away so they can check for nerve damage. Oh dudes...
{On the phone with dad}
Before running out the door I grabbed a Luna bar as 'emergency food'.
(Anyone who knows me knows I always always have at least some form of 'emergency food' in my purse). Good thing, cus Call started to feel light headed and was pretty stoked when he scored today's emergency food options, "Caramel Nut Brownie" personal favorite.
We both thought it was fun to watch someone besides our Uncles stitch him up. I said, "Huh, seems funny not to have this be Uncle Steve or Uncle Kevin doing this." and Call said, "That's just what I was thinking!!" Seems like no family reunion is complete without one of the uncles on either side stitching at least one person up. Thank heavens for Dr.'s in the fam. date tonight was SOOO nice to come and pick me up all the way from the Orem hospital so I could leave Call my car since Whitney had his car.
~~~Never a dull moment with this brother~~~
Friday-Night-Fiasco turned FuN!
